Biomedicine

Throughout your time at UEA you’ll be learning to put your skills and knowledge to use in the fight against some of the most serious illnesses we face today. Our Biomedicine degree has been designed to allow you to develop and apply your skills in the medically-related biological sciences. Our multidisciplinary approach takes from both biology and chemistry, combining the elements that are relevant to modern medicine. You’ll be taught by world-class academics,hospital consultants and practising biomedical scientists, and you’ll have access to some of the best facilities in the country, including our undergraduate laboratories, the Biomedical Research Centre, the new Bob Champion Research & Education Building and the Norwich Medical School, which is based on campus.. The Bob Champion Research & Education Building houses a unique bio-bank facility to store DNA and tissue samples, and is where they’re currently undertaking cutting-edge research into cancer, antibiotic resistance, musculo-skeletal and gastrointestinal disease. As you progress in your studies, you’ll have the opportunity to specialise your studies with our module options. Popular topics on offer include Cancer Biology; Cell Biology and Mechanisms of Disease; Infection and Immunity; Evolution in Health and Disease; Embryo Development and Stem Cell Biology; Molecular Enzymology in Biology and Medicine; and Genomes, Genes and Genomics. And in your final year you’ll complete a substantial research project under the supervision of experts in biomedical research. Biomedicine is an active and growing area of research within our School of Biological Sciences. Our academics are interested and excited by it, and it shows. Our course material is relevant and up-to-date with the latest thinking. And 100% of our biological sciences research impact has been recognised as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ (REF 2014). You will benefit from our enviable position as an integral partner of the Norwich Research Park, which is also home to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, and independent, world-renowned research institutes such as the John Innes Centre, The Sainsbury Laboratory, the Earlham Institute, and the new £75-million Quadram Institute. **Course Structure** Our three-year degree programme will introduce you to aspects of biomedicine, biochemistry, and molecular and cellular biology. You will continue to study core material through our compulsory modules, while our optional modules will give you the chance to specialise in year three, when you’ll also produce a final year project. **Year 1** Your first year will provide an introduction to many aspects of biomedicine, biochemistry and molecular and cellular biology through our compulsory core modules. You’ll also receive training in essential scientific methods and techniques, such as applied maths and statistics. **Year 2** You’ll spend your second year studying a further range of core subjects, designed to build on the knowledge and skills you will have developed in your first year. Modules will include Microbiology, Human Physiology, Clinical Genetics and Investigation of Human Disease. **Year 3** In your final year you’ll tailor your learning to focus on your own specific interests, choosing from a list of up to 10 optional modules. You’ll also develop key skills in data analysis, and you’ll undertake a substantial research project. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
